Professional statement

I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor MH17755 with over 8 years of experience in the field. I am also a Nationally Certified Counselor and hold a Master’s Certified Addiction Professional Certification.

After graduating from Troy University with my Master's in Counseling and Psychology, I have worked in several different capacities. I have experience with inpatient group settings, outpatient counseling settings to include working with those suffering from addiction and working towards recovery, depression and anxiety among other mental health concerns. One of my most rewarding experiences was working with PTSD survivors. I most enjoy being a part of my client's journey to mental health recovery.

Also, I have been an Adjunct Psychology Professor for over the past 6 years and have been immersed in the academic arena which has allowed me to assist undergraduate psychology majors who wish to go into higher levels of education.

Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track. I tailor my therapy sessions based on your needs.
